Welcome To The Art Department

As a child I thought I was going to be an artist but a teacher put me off, so I went into writing instead.

I had a breakdown in 2018 – eight weeks in psychiatric hospital. Making art was a big part of my recovery. I’m doing more and more of it, but still feel like a beginner in many ways. No bad thing, perhaps.

Each month, I run an Art Giveaway for email subscribers.

Hi, I’m John-Paul.

I make art about people and places with stories. These pictures tell you more.
